this story is actually so scary, if you love horror, you’re gong to really love The Black Phone.

The Black Phone is a story set in 1978, about a serial child abductor nicknamed ‘The Grabber’ (Ethan Hawke) who prowls the streets of a Denver suburb. Siblings, Finney (Mason Thames) and Gwen Blake (Madeleine McGraw) live in the area with their abusive, alcoholic father Terrence (Jeremy Davies). At school, Finney is frequently bullied and harassed. One of Finney’s acquaintances, Bruce, is abducted by The Grabber. His sister Gwen, who has psychic dreams much like her late mother, dreams of Bruce’s kidnapping and sees that he was taken by a man in a black van with black balloons. 

Without giving too much away (or scaring the pants off you before you even sit in your seat), this story is actually so scary, if you love horror, you’re gong to really love The Black Phone which opens at Ballina Fair Cinemas on Thursday.
